  • I want to build my own arcade controls!
Random change of display settings
« on: November 11, 2019, 06:50:03 pm »
I am using an X-Arcade tank stick with a Windows 10 box and Maximus Arcade front-end. At random times my display settings change from landscape to portrait or to flipped. I'm using a Samsung TV that supports 1080 but am using 1600x1200 resolution. My previous build was a Vista box with the same set up and no issues.

Sounds like a "hotkey" issue with either the display or video card settings.

i.e. On some systems, P1B1 (CTRL) + joystick right (right arrow) is the hotkey command to rotate the display 90 degrees clockwise.
